Hundreds collect for second day of avenue protests in Myanmar

February 7

Thousands of people marched for a second day in Myanmar’s biggest city on Sunday to protest against the military junta’s overthrow and detention of elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi last week.

Protesters in Yangon carried red balloons – the colour representing Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracracy Party (NLD) – and chanted, “We don’t want military dictatorship! We want democracy!”

By mid-morning about 100 people had also gathered in the coastal town of Mawlamine in the southeast and students and doctors were gathering in the city of Mandalay. Reuters
